And sticking with the ghostly theme, just realised my Agapanthus ‘Phantom’ has started to flower outside the polytunnel - yay! 😊 some of my other babies are in bud for the first time too so excited to see what they will finally look like #agapanthus #agapanthusphantom

Morning 😊☕️, Agapanthus 'Phantom' has started flowering. 2/half year old plant from a division I bought online, which is growing in a pot. It's been repotted each year in a slightly bigger pot and think it's now ready to settle for a couple of years. It has these lovely white flowers flushed with hints of blue at the tips #agapanthus #agapanthusphantom #africanlily

More plant diary entries 🤓. This is 'Phantom' - an evergreen Agapanthus. Arrived bare rooted in September and potted up into a pot straight away. Seems to be coming on nicely! (Note - needs winter protection) #agapanthus #africanlily #agapanthusphantom

Hi Kate, it's a blue edged variety and the base of each trumpet is white. I got it from one of the nurseries that holds the national collection. They are very good - ordered five different varieties by mail order and arrived just fine. I'll paste a web link below 😀👍🏼 @kateellery40gmailcom

Ok @kateellery40gmailcom - I've deleted the incorrect links - sorry if you got quite a few messages there for a minute 😳. The one above works now. Takes you to their home page, then you have to scroll down to click 'Online Shop' then select agapanthus to get their full range. Hope that helps 😁

Yay! 👏🏼 It's great isn't it? So many to choose from. I had a chat with the owner last year at the wisley show too, very helpful people. I also ordered a couple from Fairweathers as couldn't get all the varieties I wanted from Hoylands. Which ones have you got your eye on? 🤓 @mojo

It's fabulous 🙌🏻 I've just gone back into the website as saved about 5 plants but now I can't retrieve them 😂 I'll have to start again, I liked the dwarf varieties as well. I'll let you know later when I've found them all again. 😀

So hard to decide Rich. 🤔 At the moment it's Black Pantha. Graskop. Flare Pleno. Lavender Haze. Queen Mum. Then 2 dwarfs, Snow Pixie. Lapis Lazuli.

Graskop is a good one, got that myself although not seen it in flower yet other than pictures. The lavender one sounds nice too. I've seen Queen Mum on here from other GT members too - so many to choose from 🤔🙃😁 @mojo

Just counted yours and don't feel so guilty now 😉, might just order them all as can't decide ☺️
